Last week we showed you a photo and some vague information on what looks to be the next iteration of the famed M3 CSL. While we ‘re not 100% sure that the CSL name will be used, we ‘re pretty close. But name aside we do have some new information to share. Scott26 has confirmed to us that the car will debut in Sedan form this year due to the E90 M3 ‘s short shelf-life. A coupe (E92) version will come likely next year.
The CSL will feature carbon fiber on several body panels. Our guess is that we ‘ll see it on the hood, front fenders and perhaps the trunk-lid. Also expect some modifications inside to further help with weight reduction.
Power will be upped to between 420 and 450 hp while the suspension and brakes will be made more aggressive. Finally we can confirm this isn ‘t the “Material ” concept that M will debut at the Tokyo show.
